Workshop: "-omics technologies for marine models" 30 Nov
This event will be held at SAMS on 30 November during the annual science meeting of MASTS (29 Nov - 1 Dec 2010). Its main objectives are to build a community around the potential of "-omics technologies" to improve the biological monitoring of marine ecosystems. It will span across research councils to explore current strengths in -omics and systems biology in the marine biology sector, foster cross-council thinking and develop joint actions as appropriate, as well as looking at the international landscape. The event is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.
The workshop is opened to everyone and attendance is free. There will be a limited number of talks, and a poster session jointly held with MASTS.
Lunch and coffee will be provided.
You can register and submit abstracts (300 words) by sending an e-mail to the organiser, Dr .
Deadline for abstract submission is Friday, October 29th 2010.
If you have already registered for the MASTS inauguration, you don't need to register again for this workshop. Please let us know about any other useful information, such as dietary requirements.
